We had a very different Thanksgiving. Those of us who could gathered at the nursing home so that we could share the meal and time with Mom. The home has a “family room” which is a large room with a kitchen, piano, big screen TV, library, puzzle tables, sofas, chairs, little tables and big tables. Our intent was to eat our lunch there. We’ve never had a problem using this area before. So we plan all of this food, and I pack all the table ware, plus a holiday tablecloth, and drinks. And when we get to the home, they tell us that another family had reserved the family room. We had no idea that we had to do this. There was no other place to eat together, then, except Mom’s room. The dining room was full. But Mom’s room was cramped because she shares it with another lady. The other lady told us that she was leaving for the day with her daughter, and that we could move her bed. So we used both ladies’ bedside tables, plus a card table, plus we just put the food on the bed; fortunately we didn’t spill anything. One nightstand became the drinks table, and the other night stand became the dessert table. And all in all, it was very nice. It was much more private and quiet than any other area. We were cramped… as you can see in the picture we had to squeeze in people and chairs. But it was worth it. We were together as family.
When we came home, Hubs and put up our Christmas tree and decorated the house. I still have the front porch to decorate, but will wait until tomorrow. Also tomorrow, I want to go to the Amish store as they are selling boxes of shelf stable bacon for 99c a box. I hope to snag about 20 or so. also want to go to a store to get a sweater for my mom, a shirt for Hubs, and take advantage of a sale on massages at my massage therapy place. These are all Black Friday deals, but I don’t have to get up and fight people to do it. Did up laundry for Mom tonight, and will take it back to her tomorrow. She is supposed to go to my sister’s home tomorrow… here’s hoping!
I love Norwex. I just love how easy and fast and effeciently it cleans my house and makes things sparkle. But the product is pricey. But this week, I entered a contest and won three pieces!!! I also love 31 bags and organizational items. Again… they are pricey. And this week, I “won” being able to order a piece, get 10% off and get free shipping. So yeah… it’s been a good week.
